Chicago Prepares for NATO: Un-Spinning the Media Bias
Description: An exciting afternoon of speakers and discussion will counter the media bias which constantly conflates the word "protest" with "violence."

Wade Hannom will discuss "Why is Nonviolence so Threatening"
Rosalie Riegle will describe citizen preparations for protest, including an update on the permitted march scheduled for the week end NATO arrives, workshops on the theory and practice of nonviolence held throughout the city, and three educational teach-ins.
Plenty of time for questions and discussion. Free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
